Luke Cage-Family Matters mash-up video released

Posted on

In the first season of Luke Cage, it’s clear that family matters. That philosophy is taken to a whole different level as the Netflix series actually meets Family Matters in a new mash-up video.

The fan-made video — which is from YouTube user Zach Ace, who did a similar AvengersFull House creation — recreates the popular ‘90s sitcom with the characters from Luke Cage.

Complete with the Family Matters theme song, “As Days Go By,” the video features great sitcom introductions for many of the Luke Cage actors: Mike Colter (Luke Cage) is caught chuckling (that didn’t happen much on show), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) has a perfect walk-in with her hands raised, and Theo Rossi (Hernan “Shades” Alvarez) cracks a sly smile.

One of the crucial questions was who would get the Steve Urkel spot in the video, and thanks to a side-by-side with the original Family Matters intro, it’s revealed that Mahershala Ali (Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes) gets the honor. And of course he’s laughing.

Watch the Luke CageFamily Matters mash-up above and compare it to the original below.
